Overview

FreeHand 9 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide is a fast, easy, and inexpensive way to learn the latest version of the enormously popular, but complex, illustration program. No wordy explanations here—just clear and concise step-by-step instructions, plus hundreds of screenshots and dozens of illustrations created by seasoned FreeHand artists and designers.

The flexible, time-tested Visual QuickStart format lets you get exactly what you need from the book. Use its tabbed pages to go straight to topics such as tweaking text or adding a special effect, or read it straight through to get a thorough grounding in the program. The fundamentals are all here, from startup to image creation, from manipulation to importing the finished product into a page-layout program. You'll also learn how to work with third-party Xtras, print your projects, create Web graphics, and customize FreeHand.
